Antibiotic Resistance

Proper Use -Antibiotics are only effective against bacteria. Many common infections are usually caused by viruses. These include respiratory infections such as coughs, colds, bronchitis or the flu. - If you take a course of antibiotics, it is important to take the entire course as prescribed and not to stop taking them as soon as you start feeling better. -Overuse and improper use of antibiotics causes side effects, and in the long term it reduces their effectiveness.

Even though antibiotics do not affect viruses, many people expect to get a prescription for antibiotics when they visit their doctor. Although the common cold is uncomfortable, antibiotics do not cure it, nor change its course. Each person can help reduce the development of resistant bacteria by not asking for antibiotics for a common cold or flu.
